STM, the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers, wrote a letter to Ministers Moore and Clement expressing their concerns with Bill C-32. The letter starts with the following introduction:
STM is making this submission to you, as STM and its members are seriously concerned about some of the provisions of Bill C-32 – the Copyright Modernization Act (“the Bill”). If enacted, these provisions would seriously prejudice STM publishing, Canadian publishers, authors and rightsholders generally. Moreover, these provisions, if enacted, would violate Canada’s international copyright obligations.
